Halloween Movies - Found Footage

Halloween Watchlist 2019 – Found Footage

In my first installment of this year’s Halloween Watchlist, I recommended some horror films that were more lighthearted and funny, and also mentioned my love of found footage horror movies – good or bad. And that list even had a found footage movie on it: “Bad Ben.” So this week’s list is all about my favorite […]

Ghost Turns Out to Be Man Living in Closet

We always tell our children that there’s no monsters under their beds, or hiding in their closets. And that’s true. But there may be a weird guy living in their closet and trying on their clothes. Personally, I’d rather have the monster. But this is exactly what happened to two college students in North Carolina. […]

UFO Over North Carolina Lake?

Sometimes a UFO story will be debunked quicker than I can even report on it. And sometimes even before it’s debunked, there’s just so much wrong with the UFO story to begin with that it’s laughable. This is one such story. Behold the tale of Jason Swing, a man who thought he was filming a […]

Beast of Gevaudan

The Beast of Gevaudan: The Cryptid World’s Most Ruthless Killer

In the 18th century French province of Gevaudan once lurked a beast so fearsome that even a king tried to intercede on the people’s behalf. No, we’re not talking about some lost Grimm Brothers fairy tale. This is the sordid tale of mayhem, murder, and the Beast of Gevaudan. And you thought you’d heard of […]

The Beast of Bladenboro

For this week’s dose of folklore, let’s venture to the forests of North Carolina and explore a particularly bizarre tale of gore and mayhem.   Now you might be thinking that all tales of cryptozoology or the paranormal at large can prove rather strange.  True, but some stories are so peculiar that just trying to cobble […]

“The House Isn’t Haunted, You Nitwits”

The Spencer Mountain Mansion, located in North Carolina, is reported to be haunted. Not only is it reported to be haunted, but it has been turned into a Halloween season attraction, complete with a website that includes dripping blood. Classy. At a time when the paranormal is so “in” that logic is so often tossed […]

Bigfoot Video Declared Fake

It didn’t really need to be said, but I’m glad it was. I reported on a supposed video of Bigfoot in North Carolina last week, and pointed out how fake it looked. According to this article, The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO.net) has now debunked the video of a supposed Bigfoot crossing a road, dubbed […]

Man struck, killed by train on anniversary of fatal wreck

This story has been making national headlines, and it unfortunately shows the dangers of “ghost hunting” while trespassing. A North Carolina-based ghost hunting group was at the site of the Bostian Bridge train wreck on the anniversary of the crash (which took place on August 27, 1891). They were on the bridge in the early […]
